Mount a Windows Share in Ubuntu Server

It is really ease to access a windows share from the console of Ubuntu Server. The following steps were performed on Ubuntu Server 10.04 to access a share on a QNAP NAS with no username or password required.

  1. $sudo apt-get install smbfs
  2. $mkdir ~/temp
  3. $sudo mount.cifs //192.168.0.x/public ~/temp

Now it is possible to cd into temp and ls the contents of the public share.
